“Fabulous location and amazing views”
Reviewed March 7, 2011

We loved our stay here. We had a beautiful 3 bed apartment on the second floor - very spacious and comfortable with lovely sea views. The apartment block is on the beach front with direct access to the beach from the pool area. The communal BBQ / spa area on the roof has amazing views of Surfer's Paradise. The managers Marion and David were very friendly and helpful and really made us feel welcome. We loved the location which is in between Surfers and Broadbeach (slightly closer to Broachbeach- which we preferred) , both being a walk along the beach. We would definitely stay here again.

Our family have just completed another stay at Viscount Towers and as is usual everything was close to perfect. The friendly and helpful attitude of resident managers Marion and David is a bonus. Apartments continue to be kept in good order and have among the best views on the Gold Coast. The rooftop barbeque area and spa is our favourite place and we spend much time there. Close by is the Kurrawa Surf Club and all the restaurants and shops anyone could possibly need. The place is on the beach...actually on the beach with the safe flagged areas metres away.
We'll be back...next Easter and we can't wait. We look forward to our stays every year.

We have just had another great stay here, this time in apartment 21. We came back as we enjoyed it so much when we holidayed here in July. The apartment was lovely, very clean, spacious, well equipped and with comfy beds. The views are to die for and the proximity of these apartments to the beach could not be bettered. Weather was mixed during our week from 28/9 to 6/10 but it didn't stop us swimming in the lovely heated pool (renovated beautifully since our last visit) and going for long walks on the beach. Every day we used the spa and sauna (my 80 year old mother in law loved it!) and we usually had it all to ourselves! The rooftop area is a wonderful place to watch the weather and take great photos! Although we had our own car with us our teenage girls got the bus to the theme parks as it went from just down the road and was really quick. As always the managers Marion and David seemed to work tirelessly keeping the place clean and well maintained and were helpful and courteous at all times. They should be congratulated on the recent renovation to the pool area it is really lovely. This really is a great spot to stay, out of the craziness of surfers but close to shops and restaurants of broadbeach. I can't get over how lovely and quiet it is here, especially during the night we didn't hear a thing, just the sound of the waves! We drove to Mt Tambourine one day and went for a rainforest walk and had sunday dinner at a great pub called The Fox and Hounds on the road from Helensvale up to Mt Tambourine (10 mins from the parks) - definitely a great day out. Thanks David and Marion for another great stay we hope to come back again soon.

Great place to stay with the kids - pool recently renovated - rooftop spa- and the view to die for. 10 mins walk to Oasis shopping centre and Kurrawa SLSC. Right on the beach - not even a road to cross - watched the kids play on sand from the balcony. clean modern apertments with all you need - just like home!! Very helpfull staff.

I was a bit worried in that there had been a couple negative reviews, but the apartment we stayed in, number 4 on the first floor, was in great shape and everything we hoped for and more. As it is an older building and not as flash a building as many of the others in Surfer's or Broadbeach the price is much more reasonable.

It was fun watching all the runners, walkers and surfers go by every morning and evening. Trees blocked our view of the ocean from our the balcony, but with windows on 3 sides there was plenty of light and we could still see the sea from other angles.

Very spacious apt of 3BR/2Bath, fully equipped kitchen, secure underground parking, not that we need it, as we made due with bicycles and a bus pass for the 3 weeks we were there. About 5 min walk to Gold Coast highway where all the buses run. 3 min walk to Seaworld bus, 15 min walk to Oasis shopping and dining area (check out all the 50% off lunches).

Spa was great, and rooftop BBQ very clean and convenient. Wireless Internet in the building is cheap by the week (or $50/month).

My only real regret was that the pool was under total renovation and it was pretty noisy some days. However any guests staying from October onward won't have this problem.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom unit which was very large with a balcony that overlooked the beach. Very clean, modern and luxurious furnishings. Undercover secure parking was more than adequate. Broadbeach shopping presinct is within walking distance.

It was necessary to change our booking at the last minute and David & Marion the Resident Managers were extremely helpful and understanding of our situation and a pleasure to deal with.

We can thoroughly recommend Beachfront Viscount as superb holiday accommodation.
